    From the internet:
    Astro Launch is a tin (steel) game from the Ohio Art Company, a toy maker probably most well known for the Etch-A-Sketch. The game is played like Parcheesi/Aggravation/Trouble with a twist that one can take a short cut across the globe back to home if they are lucky with the roll of the die. A precursor to the "Pop-O-Matic", the die is rolled via a knob on each side of the game that pulls and releases a small spring-loaded "plunger" under the die.

    I found this in a local shop. This game has the instructions and is complete with all pieces. Item number 542 dated 1963. The box has some tape reinforcement on the inside of the lid but is generally in good shape.
